2013 Grey Cup Rider Fan Top Ten

Well, well, well. The Riders have won the Grey Cup. And they did it in Regina. I watched the game and I must say that seeing all those crazy rider fans sure brought back the memories. Hah! Who am I kidding, how could one forget the sheer madness that is the Rider Nation – that wonderful country of drunken lunatics with a oversized rodent as president.

At least he/she/it can ride a bike.

I’ve written before about my impressions of Rider fans before... not once, not twice, but three times (a turnover in CFL rules football). So, as a tribute to the Roughrider Grey Cup victory, here are the top ten pics of future Riderfan Hall of Famers (drum roll please).....
Nudity, a vuvuzela, oversized green sunglasses, and severely inebriated. Nope, no creature more annoying exists on earth.
It was love at first sight. This husband and ??? met at a Rider game (we don’t know the sex of the other since the mask has never come off – and it never will as they won that day).

Watermelon helmets are not just for show in SK. They are considered an art form, as per this tasteful creation.

A Rider fan's take on Derek Zoolander's trademark look – "Green Steel."

The look of sheer pleasure on this gentleman's face is undeniable. Remember, it's not illegal if you do it at Mosaic Stadium.

C'mon! The real green men are Canuck fans -  you know, the guys who taunt opponents in the penalty box. Couldn't Rider fans have come up with something more original?

Er.... I take that back.

They see me rolling … they hatin'

Even dogs aren't spared from the lunacy. This poor pooch is too embarrassed to even show its face.
Words cannot do justice. Only burps, grunts, snorts, and the sound of someone barfing.

This site is awesome. I think anyone reading this site will be intrigued to come and find out what this place is really all about. Think of it... it must be a fascinating place if it has this mamby pamby's shorts in a knot since 2008.

All I can say is this keep up with intrigue and marketing! You must actually really love this place and are just trying to keep the masses away so we can continue to enjoy the secret wonders of this great province!

Fascinating place? Well, that's one way of putting it.

It never ceases to amaze me how a site like this can slice away all the crap that locals throw up to cover the truth - showing this place for the backwards, inbred, narcissistic, nepotistic, selfish, self-centered, seething mass of lunacy that it is ...only to see people like you - yes you, dear 'Anonymous', try to paint a happy face on top.

You must be smoking the same stuff they are in Toronto!

Mommy, I see Prairie People!

the secret wonders alright, you have to be a local to know of these or get stared at and made so uncomfortable that you leave. Going on 15 years in this place ladies and gents and still an outsider

Be patient. If you just give it another 2-300 years, you might be accepted. It's all part of the secret. No wonder!!

If Hollywood made a movie about Saskatchewan, what would they call it? My favourites are:
"The Day the Earth Stood Still" (Unfortunately already taken)
"Children of the Wheat" (<>)
"Province of the Living Dead"
"The Creature from Saskatoon"
"Rosemary's Baby is Also Rosemary's Uncle and Cousin Once Removed"
"Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Combines'"

and (of course)
"The Thing from Another Province"

God, I hate this province and especially the people. I moved here ten years ago. The people are rude, rude, rude! The women in particular are horrendous. They are entitled bitches with attitudes. I cannot wait to escape. They have delusions of grandeur. They are extremely racist and unfriendly towards anyone who isn't white. And Fuck those stupid riders. These Saskatchewan people are uncultured savages.

Culture? I was told once (by a Saskawhitchiwiner, of course) that "culture" is akin to snobbery. There's local thinkin' for ya!

I know this is a little late, but the original green men are from the television show "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" the dudes from the Canucks games stole it from there.
